2011-10-16: Reflections…What am I Reflecting?

We were asked this past week to think about the question: “What am I reflecting?”

Two images were presented…the image of Adam & Eve. And the image of Christ.

What is the difference in these two examples? Adam & Eve did not stay turned toward God. Christ (though fully man, and exposed to earthly temptations) never turned from God.

As I pondered this a bit, I wrote a poem…thinking about the outcome of this decision.


REAPING A HARVEST

Into the garden He planted
Man and Woman

With one rule to follow
One tree to avoid

The choice was theirs
And is still ours

To love One with obedience
Or to love self more

The first chose the latter
Reaping a harvest of pain and suffering

But to choose the former
We reap the Spirit’s sweet fruit

______
*But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Galatians 5:22-23 (NLT)

It is my desire that I remain turned toward God…and that my decisions will result in much fruit.
